OAUTH2 GeoServer

Developer’s Corner: OAuth2 for GeoServer

Dear Readers, in this post we would like to describe work that we have done recently on GeoServer to allows user to authenticate with their existing credentials from Google or Github through the OAuth 2.0 protocol.  With this work it is now possible to authenticate as user in GeoServer against providers supporting the OAuth 2.0 protocol (like Google, GitHub, Facebook and more). It allows GeoServer to support multiple OAuth2 Providers at the same time hence it allows the users to choose the preferred login method with just one simple click. Currently we have developed support for both Google and GitHub credentials but more could be added, like Facebook, as...

On the road to improve QGIS SLD export

Dear reader, today we would like to introduce some recent work we have done in QGIS to improve SLD export. Our GeoServer Technical Lead Andrea Aime, has been working along with others at the FOSS4G 2016 code sprint to fix some of the SLD 1.1 export issues, improving the compatibility of GeoServer to reproduce the style in the process. The first fix regarded rotations, gaps and alpha values, which used to be expressed using a <ogc:Filter> instead of a normal OGC "expression", or plain value. This broke standard compatibility and made GeoServer unable to interpret the corresponding values, for reference, here is a before/after comparison Before...
